bluedude thinks:

Cool.

About the Atomic article We have a winner! Well, almost...

http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/article.asp?CIID=118998

The results are almost in for the Gigabyte Atomic Overclocking Masters! Woot!

What do you think?

All you have to do to be in the draw to attend is simply go to the competition site and make your best guess as to who is going to win on the night.

OK!

...how? It asks me to login or register, and when I do, it asks me if I'm air-cooling or extreme-cooling?

-added
Ok, I've logged in as air-cooling for no particular reason. I'm now trying to vote but can't find a button anywhere. I remember seeing a "VOTE ME!" thing flash on the competitor's pictures before I logged in, but now that feature is gone and I can't click the photos again.

Interesting, I'll check this thread again later for a possible explanation.

Who are these people? :S

I've been here for quite a while, and you had to use an Atomic Login, yet I don't think I've seen a single post from one of them.

Why are you going for a more expensive underpowered card with the GTX260 though?

Another addition:

I thought refreshing the Flash might work, so I right clicked and clicked "Play" and everything re-loaded. I then got to the entrant's page and clicked on a celebrity overclocker.
"Vote Wrong!"

...ok, wtf.

I click another image.

"Vote successful!"
"Load vote wrong!"

What the hell?

I think the biggest problem is... That no one that I know, who's overlord or higher, has ever touched Ln2... :P

That website is proving difficult.

The "Predict Winners" page loads, but there is no interactivity anymore. No buttons or even a description of how to enter.

be careful using such high vcore as that chip would not last long doing 1.55 24/7.

Complaining because extreme overclockers won an extreme overclocking competition?
Sheesh.

we were not complaining about how you won out of undoubtedly higher skill then our own, we were complaining about how whenever there is an overclocking contest a serf~initiates seem to always win and not people who genuinely provide the atomic community with a large amount of their time and skill base.
